TORQUE GRADIENT

A term used in the rating of torque synchros. It is expressed in the number of
inch-ounces of torque required to pull a specific synchro 1 degree away from its normal position; for example, 0.4 inch-ounce per degree [15].


TORQUE RECEIVER

(TR)—A type of synchro that converts the electrical input supplied to its stator
back to a mechanical angular output through the movement of its rotor [15].


TORQUE SYNCHRO SYSTEM

A synchro system that uses torque synchros to move light loads such as dials, pointers, and other similar devices [15].


TORQUE TRANSMITTER

(TX)—This type of synchro is functionally the same as the CX, except that it
is used in torque synchro systems [15].


TORQUE VECTOR

In a gyro, a vector representing the rotary motion applied to change the direction of the rotor axis. The torque vector represents the axis about which the applied force is felt [15].


TOTAL RESISTANCE

(RT) The equivalent resistance of an entire circuit. For a series circuit: RT = R1 + R2 + R3 ...Rn. For parallel circuits:


TOXIC VAPORS

Vapors emitted by a substance that can do bodily harm [4].

TR RECOVERY TIME

Time required for a fired tr or atr tube to deionize to a normal level of
conductance [18].


TRACK

Operational phase of a fire-control or track radar during which the radar beam is kept on the target [18].


TRACK RADAR

Radar that provides continuous range, bearing, and elevation data by keeping the RF beam on the target [18].
